Credits and contacts


A substantial grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation pays for the first year subscription fees for public libraries. Money from the grant will also be used for an internet-based marketing campaign to get the word out to potential app users.

Federal LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) funding administered through the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) was used to pay for the Library Now development costs for both public and academic libraries.

App Developer

The Library Now app was developed by Boopsie for Libraries, the industry-leading mobile solution for over 2,500 public and academic library locations worldwide.
